Google Assistant has gone through a myriad of changes lately. Just days after the tech giant announced mass layoffs that affected “hundreds” of employees across the Bay area, it revealed that it is removing 17 features from Google Assistant, most of which are claimed to be underutilized. However, Google is not done with the changes. In fact, it could get a new breath of life soon as Google is planning to integrate its AI chatbot Bard into the Google Assistant, giving it an AI makeover. Know what’s coming.

Google Assistant - Bard integration

According to the Google News Telegram channel, Google Assistant with Bard could be just around the corner. The rollout is scheduled for March, reports hint. In anticipation, Google has reportedly created a special page within the Pixel Tips app to demonstrate the features of the Bard-integrated Google Assistant. However, it isn't accessible to users yet. While we weren’t able to find the page, the shared video also has a demo of the Google Assistant UI in action. It will reportedly run on the new Gemini family of Large Language Models (LLMs) that Google unveiled last year.
